Affinity for conversion to estrogen: Mild to Moderate
Boldenone Undecylenate: General information
Boldenone Undecylenate, or Equipoise, as it's commonly called, is a long-lasting offshoot of testosterone. It differs from a chemical structure standpoint through the addition of a double carbon bond at the first carbon point.
Still, this simple modification is enough to reduce androgenicity and its affinity for partial conversion to estrogen when metabolize to about half of its unmodified counterpart.
This makes for a more efficient and tolerable product, which can be employed alongside multiple other anabolics, as it is often the case, in pursuit of one’s goals. The lower occurrence of preceding into estrogen also means it’s a more efficient agent and can further aid lean tissue development.
Meanwhile, the Undecylenate chemical delivery agent attached means it is one of the longest lasting anabolics around, with an astounding half-life of up to 9 days. This means it only needs to be taken once weekly for reaching maximal levels in the body.
This, alongside its greater tolerability, means it is a preferred drug for a range of goals and phases, a topic discussed in the section below.
As mentioned in the previous section, the well-tolerated and moderate nature of Boldenone means you may find it in a range of programs, including those looking at developing power, boosting recovery, or off-season maintenance of size and fitness attributes.
Its most common use, however, is in programs where the goal is the gradual, or sometimes rapid, accrual of mass and strength, even at the expense of some fluid and fat retention. Here, it is normally combined with items like Durabolin, a middle to long-acting esterified version of testosterone, and Dianabol.
These phases will generally last anywhere from 12 weeks all the way up to 6 months. Again, this will rarely be without other products accompanying it.
When carried out, the most commonly reported dosing is between 200 to 1000 milligrams weekly for men, depending on their past use of such anabolics, as more experienced users will have adapted to its use with a greater androgen receptor number on their muscles.
Female users have been reported using it in amounts of 100 to 150 milligrams with favourable results. But caution is still advised, with the main recommendation still being to stay away from its use completely if female, due to higher sensitivity to certain adverse effects, which are discussed further in the below section.
As with any anabolic, or any drug for that matter, there are a fair share of undesirable effects possible when using Boldenone, despite its high tolerability and milder nature.
Nevertheless, issues like an increase in heart size, reduced flexibility of the blood vessel walls, and a rise in unhealthy cholesterol. All of these can increase the risk of a negative cardiovascular event, necessitating a healthy lifestyle and diet, and medical supervision during use.
Other issues like the reduction and even complete cessation of endogenous testosterone manufacturing, that will persist for a time after use has ceased, necessitating a high-quality Post Cycle Therapy regime after the end of your program.
Although rarer, androgen-mediated issues like skin issues (such as oily skin and acne), or virilizing effects on women, which is the development of male-like attributes (such as facial hair and a square jaw, along with accelerated body hair growth and clitoral enlargement with vocal cord enlargement and a deepening of the voice).
Then, there is the estrogen-mediated effects, such as fluid and adipose tissue accumulation, as well as an increase in blood pressure and the potential development of excessive tissue around the breasts, known as gynecomastia.
It should be noted that the androgen-mediated and estrogen-mediated issues can be managed somewhat with the use of ancillary products like SERMs or Aromatize Inhibitors, as well as 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors. But, even with these products, there is still the possibility of these effects occurring, particularly in populations more sensitive to its effects.
Another way to help manage any potential adverse
events is to keep an eye on dosing and tightly control how much is being taken,
and for how long it is being taken for, along with the products accompanying
